A Site for Sore Eyes!

As we witness the landscapes of our world continuously change around us, so too has the nature of landscape art over time. One may typically associate landscape painting with more traditional, historical exhibits in a museum, but the genre has surged in relevance within contemporary art. While rooted in the depiction of the natural scenery that surrounds us, today’s artists use landscapes to illustrate many present-day themes such as environmental fragility and our dependence on virtual spaces. What keeps these artworks modern is their range of mediums and use of technology, as well as their range of styles from photorealism, to abstract and beyond.
